Doctoral Consortium

The Doctoral Consortium of the 2010 IEEE International Conference on Networking, Sensing and Control

April 10-12, 2010

Chicago, IL, U.S.A

Welcome to the Doctoral Consortium program of the ICNSC 2010!

The 2010 IEEE International Conference on Networking, Sensing and Control is very pleased to organize a Doctoral Consortium for Ph.D. students from all over the world. The objective of this Doctoral Consortium is to provide an opportunity for the Ph.D. students to discuss their dissertation research topics, research plans, and research methodologies with peers in the community, and use such feedbacks and suggestions to further guide their dissertation research. Furthermore, this Doctoral Consortium also provides a unique platform for the Ph.D. students to access the latest research development in this field, and develop the networking with the research community for their future career development.

This Doctoral Consortium will take place in conjunction with the 2010 ICNSC conference in Chicago. The program will be on the second day of the conference (i.e., April 12, 2010). The organizing committee will select a maximal of 15 Ph.D. students based on their submissions, and all selected students will have the opportunity to present their research in a special session. Industry and academia experts will monitor and conduct the session. Partial financial support will be available to selected students.

Interested Ph.D. students must submit their abstracts before the deadline. The organizing committee will review all submissions and select the students for this Doctoral Consortium. All research topics within the scope of the ICNSC 2010 conference are invited.

The abstract should include the following information:

1. A cover page including the student name, affiliation, research field (be specific), year in the Ph.D. program, email and detailed contact address;

2. A description of your Ph.D. dissertation research, including the following contents:

(a) Research problem statement;

(b) Significance and objectives;

(c) Summary of the current state-of-the-art;

(d) Proposed research methodology and plan;

(e) Preliminary results;

(f) Future plans

3. A detailed resume;

All submissions will be evaluated by the organizing committee in terms of originality, significance, correctness, and clarity.
